Atlantis lands, space shuttle program comes to a close

Well, that’s that. Space Shuttle Atlantis has landed safely, bringing a close to NASA’s space shuttle program after more than 30 years. It was inevitable and necessary, but depressing nonetheless. I can’t bring myself to say more on the subject, so I’ll leave you with the encouraging words of Bill Whittle on the future of space travel.

  1. The shuttle program had to end, sure, but NASA should have something to replace it, either internally or through partnerships with commercial companies. That’s what depresses me, nothing was there to take space travel duties and nothing seems to be on the way.
